I've just finished reading 'Miss Pettigrew lives for a day' by Winifred Watson this morning.
I started reading it on Thursday when I wasn't feeling well and I couldn't put it down. It is loosely a Cinderella story set in pre-war Britain and it is fantastic!
The movie of it is out in March on DVD but I'd say read the book first as it is the original story and in the movie there are added scenes.
Its definitely a girlie book and easy to read. Get it - its amazing! It is now officially One of my favourite books!
